Celebrating its 25th year, the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival is being held Now – , 2020. It now has more than 30 global marketplaces to explore & Orlando Ticket Connection has your discount tickets for this scrumptious event!
Your taste buds have waited long enough. It’s time, once again, to sip, savor and stroll your days away during the Taste of EPCOT® International Food & Wine Festival—our longest festival ever—debuting this summer at Walt Disney World® Resort. This year’s event will be understandably different from what it was in the past, but you’ll still be able to venture across six continents and beyond as you sample mouthwatering delicacies from over 20 destinations. You’ll also find many of your favorite flavors along with some tempting new ones to try. Of course, there’s family fun like the return of Remy’s Ratatouille Hide & Squeak scavenger hunt; entertainment including the merry Mariachi Cobre and the rhythmic JAMMitors crew; plus a collection of limited-edition 25th anniversary merchandise for purchase. And since the 2020 EPCOT® International Flower & Garden Festival was shorter than expected, we’re also featuring our new Remy topiary, a selection of favorite foods, and merchandise from that event as well. So give your taste buds the chance to come out and play, and join us at the Taste of EPCOT® International Food & Wine Festival.

Epcot Food & Wine Festival Eat to the Beat Concerts Not this Year!
Typically, the Food and Wine Festival includes the Eat to the Beat Concert Series, but this year it will not take place due to the lack of proper physical distancing measures. In past years’ events, the concerts feature a wide range of artists, including Plain White T’s, Kenny G and Sugar Ray.
However, festivalgoers will still be able to enjoy local musical acts — Mariachi Cobre (or Marimba de las Américas) and JAMMitors — throughout the day at America Gardens Theatre. Both groups brought some Disney magic into our lives with their #VoicesFromHome performances on YouTube during the closure. It was so great to see them live once again!
Mariachi Cobre and JAMMitors switch turns, so that each group is playing about once an hour. You can catch Mariachi Cobre singing “Remember Me” at 1:30 p.m., 2:45 p.m., 3:40 p.m., 4:45 p.m, 6:10 p.m., 7:05 p.m. and 8:10 p.m. Or jam out with the JAMMitors at 2 p.m., 3:15 p.m., 4:20 p.m., 5:45 p.m., 6:40 p.m. and 7:35 p.m.
